Engineers drown at Isimba Dam

Two mechanical engineers have drowned at Isimba dam in Kayunga District.

The Ssezibwa Regional Police spokesperson Ms Hellen Butoto told the Daily Monitor Wednesday morning that the incident happened when the two “expert engineers” were carrying out mechanical engineering in the turbine area.

She, however, said identities of the dead were not yet available.

Isimba Hydro Power Project (HPP) which adds 183MWs to the national grid was commissioned by President Museveni on March 21, 2019.

It is located 4km downstream of Isimba Falls on the River Nile, approximately 50km downstream of the Source of the Nile.

The project site is about 21km from Kayunga town and about 65km from Jinja Town.
